1973 FIRST HARDIE-FERODO 1000 Bathurst
Now 43 years old and introduced by Colin Bond, this 1973 Hardie-Ferodo 1000 was the 14th running of the Bathurst touring car race. This was the first race to be held under the new metricised distance of 1000 kilometres, rather than the 500 miles (810km) previously contested. It was held on 30 September 1973 at the Mount Panorama Circuit just outside Bathurst. The race was open to cars eligible to the locally developed CAMS Group C touring car regulations with four engine capacity based classes and it was the 3rd round of the 1973 Australian Manufacturers' Championship.
